About Jean-Georges At The Connaught
World-renowned chef Jean-Georges Vongerichten has opened his eponymous restaurant, Jean-Georges at The Connaught, this summer.
Overlooking fashionable Mount Street in the heart of Mayfair, the restaurant will offer all-hours, informal gourmet dining in a relaxed, contemporary neighbourhood setting.
The eclectic, imaginative menus are inspired both by Jean-Georges’ experiences of the Far East and his signature use of South-east Asian flavours, whilst also featuring his distinctive take on British and Connaught classics, from fish and chips to traditional afternoon tea, influenced by his earlier working life and love of London. Sourcing the best of British ingredients, the menus will also reflect the simple farm-to-table, fresh-from-the-market approach long pioneered by Jean-Georges, and found at his restaurant at The Mark and ABC Kitchen in New York.

Jean-Georges At The Connaught Ratings and Reviews
This is the quintessential example of a refined yet relaxed dining experience with delicious food and perfect service in an elegant “living room type” setting. It is lovely in every way. The Lemon burrata appetizer is unique and refreshingly delicious. The spiced salmon is near perfection. There is a fine wine selection and you can get the wonderful Billecort Salmon Brut by the glass ! Desert is sublime. My husband and I give this restaurant 5 stars because it is consistent in all aspects of the dining experience - from taking your coat upon entry right through to the doorman at the exit. Feels like family at the end of the evening. Well done, Jean Georges, well done!
My second visit and cannot wait for the next .
Exceptional service standards in surroundings that delight the senses
Well thought through menus and dishes executed with skill and passion.
Too many favourites to pick a single dish. The wine list and cocktails served with great knowledge and skill.
If you only dine in one MAYFAIR venue in 2018. Make it here.
This is a very upscale restaurant with great ambiance and impeccable service. we had a marvelous rose champagne by the glass and varied selections from an attractive menu. The food is gourmet quality — attractively presented and memorable in flavor. It is expensive but worth it.
Love the menu!
Surprising to have a 'no-fuss' menu in Mayfair, including some British classics. Priced appropriately & to a high standard. The fish & chips were a delight!
My friends described the truffle burger, and the truffle pizza as amazing.
Decor is very chic and nice atmosphere on a Friday evening.
I have been to the original JG in NYC as well as ABC Kitchen and ABC Cucina. The first time I went to JG, food was excellent. I ordered the burger the second time I went there and it doesn’t match the burgers at JG restaurants in New York. The bun was very dry and almost stale. The patty was good but it needed more condiments. The truffle mayo and cheese combo was excellent but it was missing something to add a bit more spice (jalapeños?, rocket?). But definitely the bun needs to change. It just ruined the burger experience !! I say this in the hopes in gets to the kitchen chefs so they can change it because it is an otherwise a great restaurant.
Fiona and I enjoyed our first meal at Jean-Georges. Excellent menu choices, prompt and efficient service from a friendly and professional staff. Thought some of the wines were a little pricey but guess this is London. Having said that had an excellent wine from Hawkes Bay, NZ.
The food is nice, but the portions are small. For example a 30 pounds pizza was probably for a kid rather than an adult. Avoid the pizza and order something else!
The afternoon tea that the others were having seemed very nice so I would suggest you go for that.
Strange menu, burgers and fish and chips in a 5-star hotel? We ordered Tuna tartar and gazpacho, they were great, but our main courses a disappointment.
On the plus side, service was good and really enjoyed the ambience and comfortable table seating. But the food was not good enough for me to return.
My assistant booked for lunch thru OpenTable using my account and I received the confirmation on my mobile. But the a day later I got an email from the restaurant asking for my credit card info to guarantee the reservation!
What a hassle! A bit arrogant. Not very customer friendly.
Anyway, so I, not too willingly, obliged since I had already announced the lunch location to my guest and did not want to change it.
But then thru out lunch I realized there where at least half a dozen tables available. So all that headache and bitterness caused, was for nothing, it was not as if there were a stampede to eat there.
I am not going back
The interior after the refurbishment is pretty but I never visited before so I have nothing to compare it to. I suspect the works were not particularly substantial. Sitting in the conservatory gives a great view of Mount Street and its glamorous bustle. Menu is disappointingly short. Starters are very focused on sea food and I actually did not find a single dish I felt like eating so skipped the course. Mains for lunch were either quite heavy or else you end up with pastas and burgers which do not differentiate this restaurant from numerous others in London. That just about sums up this restaurant and makes it so disappointing especially when compared to Jean-Georges Vong's countryman Daniel Boulud's Bar Boulud which always satisfies. The price was also pretty shocking. My wife had a starter plus a cauliflower side dish and I had a meat rigatoni, asparagus side dish and a chocolate and mint dessert called After Eight. For drinks we had a bottle of water, a glass of Ata Rangi Sauvignon Blanc and 2 coffees. That will be £110 please. Why would you rush to return?!
